Although we haven’t even gotten through the whirlwind that is Christmas yet, it’s already time to start thinking about New Year’s Eve, people! The chance to shrug off the highs and lows of 2017 (buy yourself that sparkly number you’ve been eyeing all month) and gear up for all that 2018 has to offer—it’s pretty damn, liberating, don’t you think?
But before we get ahead of ourselves, one must celebrate in fantastic style at an epic NYE party to end all NYE parties. Yeah, yeah, ‘done one, done them all’—we hear you. But not all New Year’s Eve bashes are made equal, and let’s be honest, ringing in the new year with an eye roll is no one’s idea of a good time!
So of course Brisbane icon Riverbar & Kitchen has organised one helluva shindig this New Year’s Eve, by way of an OTT luxe garden party.
We all saw their incredible Melbourne Cup party (seriously, the FOMO was real when Daryl Braithwaite rocked up) so don’t start 2017 off the wrong way by missing out on what’s clearly going to be the best New Year’s Eve party in Brisbane.
When it comes to location you can’t beat Riverbar’s panoramic views of the Brisbane River and Story Bridge—the perfect spot to catch the dazzling fireworks display at midnight. To set the gorgeous garden party vibes, think lush botanic surrounds, ethereal overhanging trees dripping with fairy lights and games of bocce and croquet to keep you entertained all night long.
Riverbar will be serving up specially crafted flower-infused cocktails on the night, with pop-up bars dotted around the gardens to ensure drinks are flowing untapped all night—you’ll even see the return of their infamous pig-on-the-spit to keen hunger at bay. With live entertainment and DJs keeping the party hopping until 2am, your New Year's Eve plans are clearly sorted.
With tickets on sale now (available here) and for only $35pp (plus booking fee), it’s a no-brainer as to where you’ll be welcoming in 2018.
